Hey everyone, I was just at Book Expo America, and I had an amazing time! Here’s a pic from a panel with YA authors Melissa De La Cruz, Kendare Blake, Alyson Noel, Lauren Oliver, and Veronica Roth. For the many Divergent fans out there, have no fear, Veronica Roth’s new series will start in January 2017! The first book is called Carve the Mark and you KNOW we’ll have it at the library.

The Wait is Too Long!

For everyone waiting for Veronica Roth’s next book, well…sorry, you’ll have to wait until 2017. Nooooo! I guess we’ll all be rereading Divergent until then. But Veronica has posted just a taste of what her new book is about. She says “My new book is a sci-fi fantasy story set in a time of extreme political unrest (hence the “Star Wars” comparisons you might have heard!).” For all the details, check out the whole post at her tumblr at theartofnotwriting.tumblr.com.

Veronica Roth talks about the Divergent movie

DivergentPosterWe’re SO CLOSE you guys! The Divergent movie comes out in just a couple of weeks!!!

But author Veronica Roth didn’t have to wait – she went out to Los Angeles to see the movie already and loved it. “I clearly remember grabbing the arms of my chair when Tris runs to catch the train after the Choosing Ceremony because I was nervous that she wouldn’t make it. (And then I thought to myself…YOU WROTE THE STORY, VERONICA.)” Want to read more of Veronica’s thoughts about the movie? Go to her tumblr and check it out.

Redwall fans, I’m sorry to say that author Brian Jacques passed away this week.  The 21 book series is beloved by so many people of all ages and it’s truly a loss to the literary world.  Check out this article about Jacques’ life and last book, which will be coming out in May: ‘Redwall’ Author Brian Jacques Dies at 71.
